Theism and Deism of God

Theism holds that God exists practically, objectively, and separately of human thought; that God created and sustains the whole lot; that God is all-powerful and eternal, and is personal, interested and answers wish or prayer. It holds that God is both inspiring and immanent; thus, God is all together endless and in some way present in the affairs of the world. Catholic theology holds that God is noticeably simple and is not against your will subject to time. Most theists hold that God is supreme, omniscient, and benevolent, although this belief raises questions about God's responsibility for evil and suffering in the world. Some theists ascribe to God a self-conscious or determined limiting of all-powerfulness, omniscience, or benevolence. Open Theism, by compare, asserts that, due to the nature of time, God's omniscience does not signify the deity can predict the future. "Theism" is sometimes used to refer generally to any belief in a god or gods, i.e., monotheism or polytheism.

Deism holds that God is completely transcendent: God exists, but does not intercede in the world beyond what was essential to create it. In this view, God is not anthropomorphic, and does not factually answer prayers or cause miracles to happen. Common in Deism is a faith that God has no interest in humanity and may not even be conscious of humanity.
